Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: ...

Many of you have asked about my new puppy, so here is my report. In case you don't already know this, I adopted a rescue sheltie puppy a couple of months ago. He's now about seven months old, and he's extremely cute, and sweet, and cuddly. Which is a darn good...

As a young adult, there was a period of time when I had a significant problem with asthma - which meant multiple inhalers & medications, occasional trips to the E.R., a round of allergy testing, and many years of allergy shots. For whatever reason, I more or less grew out of it, ex...

After a really busy couple of months, it's always good to get away after the holidays, and whenever I have the opportunity, I'll usually go for it. This year, a couple of friends came up with the idea of going on a cruise over the New Year's holiday - the rationale being that none of...

There's something about a brand new year that causes us to want to start over with a clean slate. We review the past year, and we consider which areas of our lives need a fresh start. We call them "New Year's Resolutions." And if you're anything like me, you've made a million of them ov...

I think we all remember the camel in the snow several weeks back. His name was Einstein, and he was riding in a trailer that got stuck in the snow on Rt. 309 in that freak November snowstorm. He became a sensation overnight! Today I listened to a song written about him on YouTu...

I have a couple of friends with whom I usually plan some sort of pre-Christmas get-together. Sometimes it's been the Philly Pops Christmas concert, sometimes it's been Peddler's Village and the Cock 'n Bull Restaurant, other times it's been something else. This year, we started...

Last month, I mentioned the fact that a conversation had sparked my interest in renewing my lapsed subscription to Ancestry.com after a hiatus of a couple of years. I also mentiomed that I discovered I had received a message from a cousin I knew nothing about. After many phone...

I didn't mean to do it. I didn't intend to get another dog - at least not until Obie (my 13-year-old sheltie) goes to doggie heaven. But, of course, it isn't every day that you hear the sad story of five rescued little sheltie puppies who were living in a barn. And so on Monday even...

Election day is a crazy day at church, so last week I decided I would stay home and do one of my least favorite jobs - clean out closets & drawers. I usually try to reserve a day every year or two to purge myself of all the various and sundry items I've somehow accumulated...
